Minecraft the first-person free-roaming game that allows players to create practically anything they desire in game, created by Independent developer Markus Persson. Has now logged over 1 million purchases on its website, and its not even out of its Beta testing phase.
A truly remarkable achievement because Persson’s reached these amazing sales figures without any kind of support from publishers relying on viral communities to spread word about the game and Paypal to accept payments.
The game starts with you waking on a deserted island, with your first task to create wood by punching trees, which you can then turn into mining picks and other types of tools.
From then on the sky is the limit, as you hack away at everything in the world and use it as a resource to build anything you can imagine using other specific items available to craft such as swords and tools to help you along the way.
If you fancy giving Minecraft a go it’s still on sale for €14.95, with a 25% discount active for the duration of the beta.
